11 years ago, the first super-jumbo jet, the A380, make its first flight successfully at Toulouse, France :) it was a giant leap in aviation history. The captain who flew that A380 was Claude Lelaie. Image
Claude Lelaie is an orange suit guy :)

Thanks for the info Quan Vo. (Someone may forgot to update wikis :lol: )
With so many freighter options from Boeing, Airbus and specially Antonov, the cargo version will remain in dreams.
